‘Main gun’ Leo (Cuba) scored 15 points, the most on the team, and the attack success rate also increased to 51.7%. However, it failed to prevent the team from losing, and the first and second sets did not work well on offense.
Regarding Leo’s sluggish 1st and 2nd sets, Seok said, “Setter Lee Min-gyu was well aware of the opponent’s check, but he was too conscious of this part, so the result was not good.” It seemed like it was difficult for Leo to hit the pass (toss).
